Southampton, UK -- A British wife who shot dead her husband while claiming she was dancing with a shotgun during a sex game was found guilty of murder yesterday. Linda West, 49, collapsed in the dock and her family shouted obscenities at the jury as the verdict was given at Winchester Crown Court, in the south England.
West had said she was drunkenly dancing to the Shania Twain song Man!I feel like a woman when she slammed the double-barrel weapon on to the floor while taking a bow and shot her husband Gregory West, 45, in the chest, killing him instantly.
The prosecution said the couple, who had been married for nine weeks, argued and West loaded the faulty shotgun and deliberately murdered her husband at their flat in Southampton in May lat year. After the verdict was given by the jury foreman members of West's family shouted at the jury: "That's a fucking disgrace". Judge Guy Boney, QC, adjourned the case for sentencing. AP
